    Heart Health and Cardiac Rehabilitation

    in Health

    February 11, 2015: February is American Heart Month. Each year in the U.S., 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease, making it the leading cause of death for American men and women. 


    Also, approximately 720,000 Americans will have a heart attack each year – an alarming number that sadly isn’t surprising when one considers that almost half of Americans have at least one of the three key risk factors for heart disease: smoking, high blood pressure, or high LDL cholesterol.


    In this episode a physical therapist outlines the signs of a heart attack, the risk behaviors for heart disease, and the healthy behaviors necessary to avoid heart disease. She also explains the cardiac rehabilitation process that awaits patients who are treated for a heart attack.

    Your heart is the center of your cardiovascular system, and it is vitally responsible for many functions.  It transports oxygen to the body, improves immune system function and delivers nutrients to the cells.   Heart disease is one of the leading causes of death.  This show will get your blood pumping.


    There is more to a healthy heart than just eating right and exercising.  Stress can negatively impact the health of your heart.  Studies show that meditation can improve heart health as well.


    On the show we'll cover lifestyle changes that you can make to keep your heart healthy and improve heart function.  On another show we'll talk about supplements you can take for the circulatory system.  There is just too much to cover in a 45 minute show.
